Tara will leave Sydney on August 24th heading for the archipelago of New Caledonia where the schooner is scheduled to arrive on September 11th.. Sampling will be carried out in the waters around the archipelago during the first week. New Caledonia is home to an extremely rich variety of marine organisms – about 20,000 species, including 400 types of coral and more than 2,300 species of fish.

After sampling coral at different sites, the schooner will be moored in the port of Noumea from September 20th to 25th . This stopover will be an opportunity for the public to visit the boat, meet the sailors, hear about daily life aboard Tara, and learn a lot about coral.
